LarryKing & Joel Osteen: Judging or Following The Instructions of God?

cherylz1961 BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BODY OF CHRIST, EVANGELISM, FALSE DOCTRINE 6 Comments

We are to hold each other accountable!!! God will judge all of us in the end and yes, we need to be careful of the planks in our own eyes before pointing out someone else’s sin. However, the Bible is our instruction manual, and there are some topics spelled out within it’s pages that are clearly an abomination to God.

Atheists do NOT believe that a God exists! Why would He let someone who denies His existence into heaven? 

If you don’t believe in God, or that His son Jesus died and rose again….. this is something you should seriously look into and pray about.

Joel Osteen mixes truth w/lies and wants to make everybody feel “good.” He does not want to rock the boat of popularity, so he will NOT speak of any biblical FACTS that might offend his public. 

These are the facts…….

We are NOT to have sex before marriage. Homosexual acts ARE SIN. God hates all sin but loves the sinner. Gay marriage is NOT of the Lord. We are not to have false gods or idols. Astrology is not acceptable in His eyes. We are not to go to fortune tellers or play with Taro Cards. We are not to glorify witches, including the so called “good” witches of Wicca.

”

Beware those who tickle your ears and lead you astray because they tell you things you want to hear.  Read the Bible.  Learn it well.  Our God have very clear ideas about sin and how to deal with it.  We are to hold each other accountable by using the Word of God to convict sinners who may be led astray.

Wicca (English pronunciation: /ˈwɪkə/) is a modern pagan, witchcraft religion. It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and it was introduced to the public in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant. It draws upon a diverse set of ancient pagan and 20th century hermetic motifs for its theological structure and ritual practice.”

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”                                     Leviticus 18:22 (NKJV)

But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness…. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.

Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.”
Romans 1:18-32 (NLT)

    Osteen reaches out to people who feel alone and abandoned in this world, offering them the loving embrace of an all accepting God. What he fails to do is point out that the same fierce love also corrects His people. And many in society do the same thing, not wanting to “offend” anyone, especially people of a “Protected” class. Our world is growing increasingly cold and heartless, so it is little wonder that Osteen is so popular. I do wish there were more Church leaders, Osteen included, who would stand up against what is wrong in this world, and there is legion demons at work in this world today. I think most Christians, pastors included, are afraid to offend others today. Even as parents we often want to be our kids best friend before being a parent. This is called putting the cart before the horse. We are called to love, we are not called to be kissing puppies, love corrects as well as embraces- we lose sight of this at our mortal peril. God Bless ya!

      Doug,
      Thank you for your very well stated comments. I am blessed to sit in a verse by verse Bible teaching church where the Pastor is not afraid to speak about the “hard” topics, such as sexual immorality. Being in leadership opens up spiritual attacks so we need to pray for our Pastors and others who are feeding His sheep.
      Blessings!

        Cheryl- Yes, great point in keeping those who spiritually shepherd others in our Prayers. So glad you have a Pastor who speaks the whole truth. Thanks for your kind words.

    Amen, great post Cheryl. We need a lot more of this type of thing. Far to many are afraid to say it the way it is.
    God bless you for being willing to do so sister.

      Thanks Greg,
      I no longer worry about what other believers think. I accept their ideas and points of view, chew on them, and lay them at the feet of God. He is my judge and I pray my words are always His. I am just the pencil in His hand.
